Our pulmonary program offers detection, treatment and rehabilitative care for patients with conditions that may cause shortness of breath.
Pulmonary function tests
A noninvasive way to assess how well your lungs work, pulmonary function tests measure:
- how much air your lungs can hold.
- how quickly you can move air in and out of your lungs.
- how well your lungs take in oxygen and remove carbon dioxide from your blood.
These tests can diagnose the existence and severity of lung diseases, and indicate how well lung treatments may be working.
Our pulmonary rehabilitation program uses education, breathing re-training, medication, oxygen, bronchial hygiene, adaptive equipment and monitored exercise for people with a variety of conditions that may cause shortness of breath.
Cardiac rehabilitation is a medically-supervised program that provides you with the tools needed to reduce your risk of having another heart event. Specialized cardiovascular exercises improve your strength, stamina – and quality of life.

UT Health Carthage cardiac rehabilitation is offered Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6:30 a.m. to noon.
